SCRATCH REMOVAL
Glas-Weld Introduces the Next In Line
Glas-Weld Systems Inc. has released its new Scratch Removal Polishing Compound for use with its distortion-free scratch removal system. The system has been tested by both ANSI and BSI standards and is designed to work on all types of glass. Depending on the type of the glass, the Bend, Ore.-based company says that this new compound works 25 to 35 percent more quickly than previous versions.

"This is the eighth or ninth generation of compound that has been released in the last five years," said Glas-Weld Systems vice-president Dave Shores. "Each generation has allowed our customers to remove scratches faster than the prior generation or has allowed them to remove deeper scratches than in the past."
